Rural Wageningen Foundation has a long tradition – since 1978 – of organizing activities for students in Wageningen.

However, over the years many teams – board members, coordinators, …
One thing we really like about our new motto is that it playfully hints at the anagramic relationship between WUR|RUW, thereby reflecting the university’s profile as a life sciences institute, and showing the powerful feedback loop between the two life science organizations. To actually start working our newly imagined motto and to really start putting …

How do you experience the scientific process in Wageningen? And where might it improve?
With this first edition of the World Café organized by the RUW foundation, we want to create an informal room to exchange experiences, thoughts and ideas about how we experience the scientific process in Wageningen. Everybody in and around the university is part of the academic climate in one way or another, so we feel it’s a good idea to share thoughts about why it works, what we like, problems we run into, and ideas on how to improve the quality of our work… The goal of this evening will be to casually broaden our perception about what it means to work in science via personal stories in a World Café type of setting. We think that talking in a casual way from our personal perspectives about these issues can be very inspiring, useful and fun. Therefore we would like to invite everybody – science pratitioners and science entuousiasts, professionally and/or non-professionally and directly or indireclty involved with science – in Wageningen, to join this dialogue and share experiences and thoughts with others.
During this evening we facilitate three rounds of casual dialogue (of ca. half an hour), centred around the following general questions:
1. What makes good science?
2. Are the structures enabling us to do our work as good as we want/should?
3. What do we want to improve?
During, in the meantime, and after the rounds, we are in a relaxed bar-setting, and can also enjoy many other stories with a drink in our hands.
When? November 28, 2018 – from 19h30 to 22h30
Where? Eetcafé H41 (upstairs)
